Trabelsi signs

In some more positive news, the club also announced tonight that Hatem Trabelsi has passed a medical and signed an initial one yar contract, with an option for a further two year extension pending him being granted a work permit.

According to Stuart Pearce:

"The fact that he’s played at the highest level in Europe – the Champions League – regularly, been to three World Cups with his country, captains his country so it’s a good CV.
I’ve watched him play for Ajax over the last three years and been very impressed with him. He’s an attacking full-back we’re just waiting on that work permit now."

Pearce has stated over the summer that he is looking for his full-backs to get forward and be far more involved in the attacking part of the game so Trabelsi clearly looks to fit the bill. His arrival must also mean the end of Danny Mills career at the club, and raise question marks over the involvement of Sun Jihai as both players are further pushed down the pecking order.
